The Friday before a three day weekend is not the best time to go to the grocery store. I know that, but last Friday chose to ignore my own wisdom, and join in with the long lines of briskets, charcoal, and beer; though all I really needed were a few staples. I ended up looking at three magazines while I waited in the checkout line.
Since, I am on the hunt for some inspiration for casual summer styles, one look jumped out at me because I had all of the pieces in my closet. I styled it…took the pictures…but I really do not think it works and here is why…THE TOP PART AND THE BOTTOM PART DON’T SEEM TO BE A PART OF THE SAME OUTFIT. It looks too much to me like I took a professional style and shoved casual Friday on the bottom. My photographer, Mr. B, said, “Oh I get it, this outfit is all about the shoes!”
Well, it wasn’t …but maybe it should be! I like the shoes! Sometimes inspiration looks just do not work! Anyone disagree or agree for that matter! If it doesn't work, what would make it work??
Today is my last day at work for this school year. I received so many great ideas for my low-cost, low-key twelve days off and I plan to implement several. I started this past weekend with Terri's advice. Within her comment, she said, "...For the first three days I didn't make myself conform to ANY time frame. I let myself sleep as late as I wanted, and then took at nap!..."
That was my Memorial Day weekend, sleeping, napping, and reading a romantic, mystery thriller. So, Wednesday, I will begin with "On the 12th Day of Vacation" posts. Hope you will check in to see whose advice I follow. Make sure you register to win the esahkti giveaway and have a fabulous Tuesday!
Til then, I thought you might enjoy a couple of pictures of my youngest son arriving to spend the summer with his sister and brother-in-law in Saipan...summer on an island?? Not too shabby!
